HiFi Plus Cable of the Year 2010
Stereophile Recommended Components 2016
Black XLR Cable

A Stereophile recommended component 2016, Hi Fi + cable of the year and a five globe performer for Hi Fi World magazine, should give an indication of how well this cable performs. As was written in Audio stream when comparing it to another cable: greater clarity, a more natural presentation, a more open yet defined sound image, improved tonal qualities and, taking a few steps back, a more engaging musical experience.

Performance Profile
Blue Family
Warm and forgiving for systems with a slight edge or for those who like a more smooth laid back presentation. Blue and Ultra Blue are especially good for AV and home cinema
Black Family
Smooth, fine detailed and great resolution while actually reducing apparent harshness. Music is presented as a coherent, organic whole, with a jaw-dropping sense of realism and naturalness.
Silver Family
Totally uncoloured, acting as a wide open channel sounding unforced, vivid and dynamic with phenomenal resolution, transparency and natural tonal colours. All this while sounding extremely analog and coherent, from the exceptional top end extension to bottom with finely detailed, separated bass notes.
Reviews and User Comments
Tone Audio

“A more clear positioning of virtual sources, especially in depth. The second point – improved transfer rate, which is especially noticeable on phonograms with an abundance of all sorts of percussion instruments.”

“Treble, as per the RCA, was atmospheric and spacious, but deliciously devoid of smear or grain – hi hats appeared to ‘glint’ in the background beautifully.”

“The XLRs have a very natural sheen to them and great resolution. Quiet as you could get. Very impressed.”
